Camp De Thiaroye

A powerful fact-based drama by Africa's most celebrated filmmaker Ousmane Sembene, which deals with the dilemma of African troops in French Army at the end of World War II. The story opens with repatriated Senegalese infantrymen being placed in a transit camp ostensibly for temporary internment before discharge. The real purpose, however, is to reestablish the structures of white oppression disrupted by the war. A dispute over petty regulations soon escalates into a full-scale rebellion, culminating in a massacre that invites comparison with Eisenstein's Odessa Steps in its ruthlessness and artistry. Camp De Thiaroye is a tough and authentic film which combines complex, vivid characterizations with a f-rceful story-telling style and an incisive sense of history.
